1000 Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are.
Ann is a wonderful writer, mother of 6, with a distinct and poetic voice. She weaves her own personal stories in and out of her search for living fully an everyday life.
The challenge she undertook as part of this process was to write down 1,000 gifts and to thank God for them as a way to change perspective from what she didn't have to what she did.
In the Old Testament book of Genesis, Eve, poor girl, focused on what she didn't have rather than the abundance around her. It's just this sort of thing that the practice of giving thanks is designed to help us combat.
It sounds really simple but sometimes it's the simple things that are the most transformative of our lives.
My own gift list is up to 126. And I've decided to embark on a 1,000 gifts photo project culminating in a book. This photograph of Raindrops on my Moon Roof is gift photo #1.
Is there anything that you feel is a gift today?
